What started out as an outlet to document the journey of a single mother aspiring to earn her PhD, has turned into a way to encourage other single parents.  It is possible to reach your own educational dreams at the same time ensure your healthy family makes memories.  The main aspect of the blog is to highlight how families of single parents can be well educated, active in the community, and healthy while having fun and saving money.

Although this is founded by  a single mother, ALL people can benefit from the topics covered in the blog!


Maranda Miller, single mother of two young girls (10 & 5),  is presently taking a break from her pursuit of a PhD in STEM Education.  Her educational background is in computer science and adult education focused on mathematics.  When not being a mother she is busy teaching adult learners desiring to earn a GED or perform well in a Mathematics course.
